    I saw it there, where ? there on the chair where on the chair ? right there…..

    I don’t even have to play this.

    Our childhood Saturday mornings revolved around a one hour radio program, “Children’s Favorites” on the Light station of the BBC which featured many songs of this type. The host was “Uncle Mac” purported to be a hero from the Somme and later paedo allegations were leveled against him

    Theme from the Dambusters, Champion the Wonder Horse, Sparkys Magic Piano, Tulips from Amsterdam and so on were crushed in 1963 by the arrival of the Fabs. Uncle Mac would hang on until the last song and then would drop something from the Beatles.

    Children’s Favorites finished in 1965 and was replaced by Junior Choice, Uncle Mac kicked off in 1967. By then we didn’t care, we had already switched to Radio London and Radio Caroline that were filling our transistor radios with wonderful music live from the North sea

    Great pick Kat, thank you

      My Dear Hedley,
      You are very welcome.

      There is something about songs such as this as well as The Fairy on the Christmas Tree, The Biggest Aspidistra In The World (I love Gracie Fields) and Tulips from Amsterdam which appeal to me. I always listen at least a couple of times.

      My childhood was mostly spend around the TV though I do remember listening to the radio. There was The Lone Ranger and Sergeant Preston of the Yukon.

      By the early 60’s music was all we listened to on the radio. It was rock and roll!!
